UEFA decision clears way to finish season

Euro 2020 has been postponed by one year until 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic, says the Norwegian FA.

Uefa, European football’s governing body, has been holding an emergency video conference involving all major stakeholders on Tuesday morning.

The Norwegian FA said on Social media it was decided that the tournament will now take place from 11 June to 11 July next year.

BBC claims the decision will be signed off by Uefa executive committee later on Tuesday.

The tournament was due to take place from 12 June-12 July this year at 12 venues across Europe.

The postponement provides a chance for the Premier League that have been suspended to now be completed in June and July.

Uefa’s Nations League and the European Under-21 Championships are also scheduled to take place next summer.

The 2021 Uefa Women’s European Championship is set to take place in England and begins on 7 July, four days before the proposed men’s final.

  1. So they think they will be playing in June and July. I suspect they will be disappointed.

  2. Uefa decision clears way to finish season? How?

    In case you hadn’t noticed, we have CV here as well and it’s only going to get worse.

  3. Unless things settle down very quickly after the virus peak in May/June I can’t see a ball being kicked until September?
    The next few weeks will show if & when this season can be played out.
    As for next season, let’s hope & pray all those supporters who are likely to be laid off are able to afford to renew their season tickets or just attend when it’s all over.
